We stayed at Morwendon House for 2 nights and would highly recommend to anyone. We received a lovely warm welcome and were shown to our room (Room 3) which was lovely with fantastic sea views. We booked dinner on the night which I would highly recommend as it was excellent as so to were the breakfasts with a great choice. Thank you Geoff and Teresa for making our stay so enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you again. Charlotte & Alice.

We stayed at Morwendon for a couple of nights at the beginning of August, and would thoroughly recommend it. Our room was lovely and comfortable with absolutely fantastic sea views. When we said we liked walking, Teresa recommended a local walk and arranged for her husband to give us a lift into town the following day to get the bus to save us paying for parking! The breakfast was excellent, with a good menu choice, using local produce.

Thank you for an enjoyable and relaxing couple of days - wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Book early as there was only one room left when we booked - but it was still very nice.

We enjoyed our stay at Morwendon and would definately recommend it to anybody. Take no notice of the lesser starred reviews, this place sets the standard for other guest houses in North Wales. The house is tastefully decorated whilst keeping some period features. The owners are perfectly polite and attentive, and the location is perfect. This was the first time we decided to travel by train (from Brum) and there was no problem, and the local stop Llanaber is around 3 min walk.

Thank you for taking time to write a review of your recent stay at Morwendon for your Wedding Anniversary. We are delighted you had a good time and felt able to tell others too. You highlighted the train which stops literally 150 yds from the house and you used that to full effect during your stay as well as arriving and departing on it. It is a facility very much appreciated by our guests as it frees them from car travel and parking etc. Once again thank you for choosing Morwendon and we hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes Geoff & Teresa

A very nice B&B, excellent breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice!
The only pity was that we were staying in the attic room which is too small to be comfortable... Taking a shower was difficult for me (1.90m) because of the low ceiling. It felt like they wanted to take every space out of the building and they created an extra room which wasn't there...

Room Tip: Don't pick the attic room, it is really tiny...

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you had a "Great Stay".

We take our duty to our guests very seriously which is why we go to great lengths to ensure that guests who book that room are under no illusion that it is a 'SMALL DOUBLE' and 'unsuitable for tall people'. These phrases are repeated again and again whether you book through our website or an agency such as 'Booking.com'. They are also repeated one last time in our email letter of confirmation which every guest receives. It is somewhat of a mystery then why this guest appeared to have been taken by surprise and not only that but never mentioned it whilst he was here. It is a small room with a small bathroom but it has been passed by the AA inspector as suitable for a double bed. The price of the room reflects it's size and at £31.25 p.p. + VAT we think it is good value. The food and the service you receive are the same. But please don't book on price alone without reading the details and then moan about it.

We stayed here for one night in order to attend a family wedding, when we arrived we had a lovely, warm welcome from Teresa, who immediately arranged a taxi for us to get back to the party in Barmouth. The room was lovely, had great views across the sea, a nice sofa to sit by the window. The bed was nice and comfortable, the bathroom was also just big enough. The breakfast was also nice, with choice of cooked breakfasts. Really enjoyed our night here.
